Nurse's Diary at Blogapalooza 2013

During my first year of serious blogging, I feel so blessed that I was able to collaborate with some brands, be able to attend events and gain new friends as well. I am able to influence few people just by merely reading from the day-to-day accounts of my life. That’s what makes my blogging really worthwhile. But I do intend to keep my blogging system and influence more people for as long as I can and as long as I have to share (that would be a lot). But as a blogger I also need to think outside of the box. I am glad that there are ways that we can bring business to our blogs through Blogapalooza. Since I am a noob in this industry, I made my research as to what and how this thing works. Thanks to Vince of When in Manila and Anton of Our Awesome Planet who made all these things possible and also to my good Chaynee for telling me to sign up for the event too!

Excited I was despite the hullabaloos happened that day, I was able to survive and made my way through the event. What happened? I went home accomplished.

When I arrived at the event, the place was already full of bloggers roaming around each of the booths there. I too, went on and tried on some of the products they’re offering.

My first stop was the grab taxi since it was near the entrance of the event and before my memory banks expires to claim my cashback for the cab fare. Thank you Grabtaxi! My experience with Grab taxi will be on a separate post. They also gave out four vouchers worth p50 each and a waived pick up fee from the event.

Then Chaynee and I tried to answer the mind-bugging question from the The Mind Museum, but unfortunately our minds weren’t in the right track that time so we didn’t win a prize but we got to take home a token.

Next stop is a little caffeine boost. You know how much I love coffee right? Mind you I had triple dose of caffeine that day but I didn’t regret any of it because all of it were significantly delish! Next stop is the Plato Wraps booth which has a long queue. As far as I can remember it was my favorite to-go snack few years back. I specifically like their tuna wrap, which is my favorite! Now I get to take home a box of treat, which I wasn’t able to take a photo because dear Lover enjoyed it already. And mind you, he loved it! Adjacent booth offered another sweet treat, which is the Gavino’s donut. They specialize in chewy donuts, which I can say was definitely “love at first bite.” I would add them to my favorite lists of my guilty pleasure.



There were also lots of giveaways during the event and prizes were given almost each hour. Of course you have to connect through your social media using a strong connection which was powered by PLDT so everyone gets a chance to win an awesome prize.

Speaker Ana Santos
Next booth was the Richwell Trading, which offers a wide variety of kids apparel as well as toys. I know that as a mom this will be one of my favorite booth. I get to take home tokens for my kids too.

While we were enjoying our lunch, the speaker Ana Santos caught my attention. I liked her in an instant. She was a strong willed woman and driven with positive thoughts. She was a living proof that in this blogging world, dedication should be coupled with hard work in order to succeed in your chosen path and we need to explore all possibilities and opportunities that lies ahead.

Tokens I get to take home from the event

That caps my Blogaplooza experience. Looking forward for another fun event next year.
